ChatSim - the world's first instant messaging SIM - and Opera, the app that helps save precious kB when using your smartphone, partner up.
MILAN, June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's love at first sight between ChatSim, the world's first instant messaging SIM, and Opera Max, Opera's app that helps save precious kB when using your smartphone. (www.opera.com).
Designed to exchange messages from Instant Messaging Apps, ChatSim is the world's first SIM that lets you chat free of charge, anywhere and with no limits, even without Wi-Fi using Instant Messaging Apps: WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, WeChat and many other apps available for smartphones and tablets.
Today ChatSim is the world's first "Instant Messaging Mobile Operator" (www.chatsim.com).
Through this agreement with Opera Max, ChatSim now helps its users save data traffic on smartphones, extending the limits of your rate plan at the same price.
"Sharing emotions is written in our genes," explains ChatSim CEO Manuel Zanella (38 years old), also founder and CEO of Zeromobile, Italy's number one low-cost global mobile operator (www.zeromobile.it). "Every day ChatSim lets you share emotions through messages, emoji, photos and videos, in every corner of the world. And now it's even easier. There are other available apps that can do it, but we recommend Opera Max," points out ChatSim's inventor who admits: "It's love at first sight between ChatSim and Opera Max! Everything runs perfectly when ChatSim and Opera Max work together," reveals Manuel Zanella.
Opera's products are used by over 350 million Internet users to connect to their favorite content and services regardless of the device, network or location.
Arjun Bhatt, Director of Partner Marketing of Opera Max states: "Opera Max's data savings, data management & App Blocking features help users easily get more value out of mobile data services. We are happy to collaborate with ChatSim to offer a flexible and affordable solution to communicate with our loved ones while abroad."
Using ChatSim with Opera Max allows:
- Disabling data traffic of apps other than those for instant messaging in a fast and easy way.
- Reducing total traffic exchange and hence the risk of exceeding the average daily traffic.
- Monitoring the traffic sent and received by each messaging app.
But that's not everything. ChatSim and Opera Max have also teamed up to help users save on useless and hidden roaming costs. Some smartphone apps are very "sly" and can use data traffic when traveling abroad without noticing it. ChatSim, through Opera Max, lets you monitor the data traffic of your apps creating a summary of your smartphone's activity. This way you can see which apps are most kB-intensive and how much you are saving.
"All phones, even those with a ChatSim card, are actually exchanging data even when they seem to be idle," explains Manuel Zanella as he warns consumers. "Apps keep on connecting in the background, downloading updates and much more. In order to keep this from happening and to avoid using SIM traffic without realizing it, we recommend users to check that background automatic updates are disabled as well as the data traffic of non-instant messaging apps." As Zanella stresses with great satisfaction: "ChatSim features a system of alerts and blocks to protect users and help them prevent using the available data traffic without realizing it."
Opera Max is the perfect match in helping ChatSim users and, in general, all smartphone users. A simple and user-friendly interface lets users disable data traffic by non-messaging apps.
Thanks to ChatSim, you can chat for free and with no limits at all, exchanging text messages and emoji for a year with just €10.
Besides chatting for free and without limits with all instant messaging apps, even without Wi-Fi, ChatSim is also the first "Instant Messaging SIM" in the world to introduce voice calls with all instant messaging apps as a single voice communication system. Even without Wi-Fi.
ChatSim can be purchased online at www.chatsim.com and is delivered all over the world.
